Hello, sheeps

***Now with working home video…sorry***

After many too many weeks buried in work and self-concern, I was reminded this weeked of the importance of spending time with those closest to me. With that in mind, we headed out to the pumpkin patch (which, if the 400 other people there were any indication, is quite a popular autumn tradition).

My favorite line from the kid on Saturday, as he wandered around the farm area: “Hello, sheeps!”

In short, this post is only an excuse to post a few kid-pics for the folks back home.

Oh, and my favorite line from the kid today, following the game-ending interception in the Philly/Dallas game: “T.O. crying…”


Oh, and I couldn’t help but add some pictures, video, and daddy guitar noodling to the kid post. I’ll get back to being moody and snarky soon…promise.

  2. Visiting the Pumpkin Patch is my favorite fall activity. We go next weekend. My daughter has been talking about it ever since last year. Isn’t it fascinating the things that become “fun” when your life changes dramatically to accommodate small children?
